The common areas were very dim and cluttered, particularly the breakfast arrangements. Breakfast was unusual and dismal. It was also awkward to serve up due to clutter. The croissants were soggy. The female owner was impolite and insincere. The room was very pretty, though for some of the advertised inclusions, we had to go searching around the common areas to...

What a disappointing review! Well we realise that some people just can't be pleased no matter how hard we try! And try we did! We take seriously our duty of care to check in with our guests as to how their day went, what plans for dinner etc. to ensure they are enjoying their stay and seeing all there is...

We enjoyed our two night stay in this beautiful period guesthouse. Walking distance to town. We were very well taken care of. Excellent breakfast as well. We felt like home being here and wish we could have stayed longer.

We stayed 2 nights in April and enjoyed our stay. It is in a quiet residential area with off street parking. The room was not big but very clean and well appointed.

A lovely guest house but as per other reviews, expect rooms on the small size. That said they are well appointed and thought out. Getting into bed the sheets were sooooo crisp and clean they were a real pleasure. Being a 100 year old house expect some creaks as you lay in bed but that only adds to the charm.

We had a lovely time at Kurrara. I had mucked up the booking but Stephanie fixed our issue up in 2 minutes. Stephanie also welcomed us as we arrived. Our room was spotless and the bed/bedding was lovely. Breakfast was great too. Would I go back again? Absolutely.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kurrara. The breakfast arrangements led to quite convivial discussion with fellow guests. We really appreciated the old world atmosphere and charm of the place. We recommend it to other travellers.

Kurrara is charming, clean, comfortable, with pleasant hosts and a very nice breakfast spread. I liked that it's located in a quiet residential neighborhood, about midway between the Katoomba train station and the trail heads at Three Sisters.
